SPAIN, RYAN am trying to locate information of Joseph M. SPAIN (1854- ) and Ellen RYAN (1860- ) and any of their Elizabeth, Joseph jr., Helen, Alice, Nora, or Frances. Ellen was the daughter of John & Honora Ryan of Madison County. Know that they were married in Sioux City, Iowa some time in mid-1880's and that they did live in Madison. Mike Spain was from the St. Patrick's parrish originally and became a hay buyer in Sioux City. Family eventually moved to California, but do not know when or where. Have nothing on any of the children other than Elizabeth and have learned that she was a Carmelite nun in San Diego, California later in life. Any additional help would be appreciated
